The Vault №112 What's in an RPG? As games continue to evolve and change concepts, that's changed significantly.

Here are three games who all serve up RPG gameplay, of sorts, in vastly different styles and ways.

The Vault №107 Halloween is galloping towards us, so it's time to enjoy some deliciously creepy gaming treats, ranging from "eh" to "OH NOES" on the scale of fear. A macabre toy story, an up close and visceral medical simulation, and a horrifyingly tense game of cat-and-mouse will be just the ticket to get you ready for the season. Pleasant dreams.

The Vault №108 Beep boop whrrrrrrrrrrr KLIK! That's "robot" for "You're looking nice today!" Though if you change the inflection a little it means "This week's Vault looks at three really different but really awesome robot themed games!" Which is kind of convenient as far as translations go. Shhhh, don't think about it. Just enjoy.

The Vault №98 Babies? Snacks? Magic cubes? Secret government projects? What could these games possibly have in common? Well, aside from the fact that they're all point-and-click adventures, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! Haha! That's right! I'm sticking it to the man and making a Vault article where the games have nothing in common whatsoever apart from the gameplay and interface and execution and okay maybe two of them are advergames BUT THAT'S ALL.

The Vault №94 Emotions can be powerful stuff, and few people ever expect to encounter them to any great degree when they set out to indulge in a little casual gaming.

The Vault №92 Things have been pretty tough this spring on Tricky Farm in JayIsGamesVille. First, I wasn't able to get enough invite responses to save ol' Bessie. Then, after forgetting to check in every seventeen minutes, the whole sorghum crop dried out. At least, I know I can always look to the JIG Archives for a bumper harvest of fun. This week, we have some gateway strategy games that are sure to take your mind off any agricultural trouble.
